The 1980s have so many movies worth watching (or re-watching)…
The 1980s was wicked – and the movies released then are still some of the best-loved of all time.
There are the absolute classics that have added lines to our vernacular, like “If it bleeds, we can kill it”, “ET phone home” and “No-one puts baby in the corner” to the cringiest 80’s silliness, and everything in between.
So put on some fluoro lycra and sweat bands, plump up the perm, grab yourself a TAB and press play on the VCR because this decade was made to be binged.
Straight out the gate with a cracker of a film.
This is a classic coming of age story from the pen of Stephen King, brought to life in a moving and relatable way.
It’s also some of the earliest work from stars like Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman and Kiefer Sutherland.
A lot of groups of boys did a lot of adventuring in the movies of this decade…this is a Spielberg style treasure hunt that’s worth a look.
The iconic, “if it bleeds, we can kill it” come from this Arnie action adventure from 1987. Classic commandos Vs aliens. Classic Arnie.
Early in the 80s we feel in love with a shipwrecked alien that just wanted to talk to his family. “E.T. phone home?”
This is sweet, sad and so worth watching again and again.
Maybe Spielberg’s best work…
